End Citizen United Quest To Reform The Campaign Finance System

Tiffany Muller, the President of End Citizen United, gave a declaration to the House of Representatives to moderate the campaigns finance protections. On a daily basis, the American people go through a lot of trouble caused by the enormous impact that emanates from special interests in politics and government. The campaign finance protection has had an influence towards healthcare costs, education as well as the stagnant wages. In her statement, Tiffany is urging the representative to put the American interests at heart.

Despite the calls to do so, the politicians continue sourcing for funds. The House of Republicans has been a platform that such measures go through and exerts more power and influence. Corporates, donors, and churches are used to conceal their interests and also to propel more money into the political elections. Through her statement, Tiffany Muller is urging the Senate to revisit the matter and decline the spending bill.

With the aim of reducing big money off politics, the End Citizen United is gearing up in raising money of their own. In three months, they managed to raise $4 million and are anticipating having $35 million in readiness of the midterm congressional elections that will take place in the year 2018. The contribution is set to be a remarkable achievement up from the $ 25 million collected in the year 2016. According to Muller, the PAC received an average contribution of $12 this year with 100,000 people contributing in the first quarter of the year. Out of that number, 40,000 were doing so for the first time. Most recent, the political action committee compelled its contributors to raise $500,000 in support of Jon Ossof who is in the race for Congress and is a fast time candidate. To the surprise of many in the political arena, Ossof managed to raise more than $4 million for the upcoming special elections.

End Citizen United operates as a conservative PAC and does not receive more than $5,000 from a person. ECU has also strengthened its ties with more than two dozen other campaign finance groups. The organization also went ahead to compel the Republican Senators to disqualify themselves from voting in Betsey Devos on her nomination as the Education Secretary under President Trump administration. Despite that, there was a draw, and the Vice President cast the tie-breaking vote placing her as the Education Secretary.
